Its in this photo + they talk about it in some of the news articles etc.

I can only think, that because Magnesium wheels are delayed (most likely due to GT2 RS), the wheels aren't available as yes, so maybe configurator doesn't include them to not get peoples hopes up at the moment?

That is maybe the case.

Anyway: The price for the WP on the GT3RS makes the WP for GT2RS look like a bargain. 17.850€ (without magnesium wheels) vs 29.750€ (GT2RS with magnesium wheels). 11.900€ for the magnesium wheels is cheap.

It looks like Porsche been thinking a little bit more on the color scheme in the .2 RS then the .1 RS.

For instance you could only get red 6-pt belts with your lava interior - which did not work well.

Or you ordered red belts with silver stitching in the interior getting silver door straps which you had to replace yourself to GT4 straps if you wanted them red (or go cxx).

Maybe not a big deal when driving - but when configuring

From the other GT3RS thread here on Rennlist:

Pricing and availability
The new 2019 911 GT3 RS is available to order now and is expected to reach U.S. dealers in fall 2018. The MSRP is $187,500, not including available options or the $1,050 delivery, processing and handling fee. The Weissach Package is available for $18,000. The magnesium wheels can be ordered for an additional $13,000 in conjunction with the Weissach Package and will be available at a later date.

Agree this car is my dream car to own for ever. I am loving my .2GT3 but this thing is everything I love about a street legal NA racecar! I will be selling a kidney next week to get inline.

I'm completely confused. So the GT3 RS is now turbo?? (I'm looking at Porsche's website.)

Okay, I'm guessing Porsche screwed up their site and posted the GT2RS numbers. Sure they'll fix it.

Suspension: yes, it is only the swaybar and the links to the swaybar that are made of carbon when WP
Steel cage: Yes you can order WP without Ti cage.

FWIW: I would do No WP if I would get an allocation - I simply like the looks of the No WP car better.

+1.
MK I was 3131 lbs
Funny that MK I stats shows 0-60 in 3.1 seconds.

"62 PANORAMA JULY 2015 JULY 2015 PANORAMA 63 It hit home. This was a message to Porsche: ‘Please do more analog cars.’ It doesn’t matter if they are the fastest on track or not. The pure motoring car, the satisfying car you take out for a drive on a Saturday morning, just for a spin, just to make you grin. The GT3 edged away a little bit and made room for something else.” That would be the GT4, which begs a question: After driving the GT4, GT3, and GT3 RS, which one for pure fun? Ignoring price for a moment, the GT4 may be the most engaging choice and the most easily extended. But, with a Carrera S engine, it can’t match either GT3 for ultimate emotion—and it certainly can’t match their performance. While the GT4 is the only choice for those who must have a manual, some will pine for the next rung up whenever a GT3 or GT3 RS blows by them on a long straight at Road America or a Sebring sweeper. Between GT3s, the RS’s advantage is track dependent. “Mechanical grip is a lot higher at lower speeds,” says Preuninger. “But the faster you go, the wider the gap becomes due to the RS’s aero advantage. It begins at about 150 km/h (93 mph), and then the distance between these two curves is substantial.” This is where the state of Porsche Motorsport’s offerings becomes fascinating. Technical developments and market interests are leading to model lines within model lines. Roughly $45,000 separates GT4 from GT3, and GT3 from GT3 RS. We suspect more GTs will come from a department that has been moving from one success to the next. A simpler GT3 with a manual gearbox is one possibility. A GT4 RS is another, as is a truly unhinged GT2 that recalls the 964 Carrera 4 Lightweight. Or not. Do current GT offerings represent good value? Few would say the GT4 is anything but a screaming deal. The GT3 remains a strong value based on its performance and usability. Against the GT3, the new RS deletes 22 pounds and adds 25 hp, 13 lb-ft, and 20-millimeter wider tires all around. It doesn’t sound like much, but Porsches rarely measure up well in that kind of analysis. Their benefits are subtler, seen in cumulative performance. No previous GT3 did subtle brilliance better than the 997 GT3 RS 4.0, a $185,950 car three years ago. If one can check nostalgia and personal preferences at the door, the 991 4.0 leaves the 997 4.0 for dead in terms of technology, equipment, pace, and execution—and the old car was an absolute masterpiece. Now consider the 2016 RS’s price in light of the RS 4.0’s price in 2012, or the skyrocketing values of used 997 RSs and RS 4.0s. Is this the best RS to date? For those who take to the track, the answer is yes—by a continental mile. As with the 991 GT3, rear-wheel steering provides improvements in stability and agility. Rear wing is truly massive, while rear fender inlets pressurize the engine intake at speed. Porsche says that’s worth up to ten horses. The front fender extractor vents dissipate heat and are claimed to increase downforce at the front axle by 30%.
